Friday Night Dinner for Philadelphian near Wall Street

Any recommendations?

Something inspiring, original and under $25 an entree.

Also I need to be able to get in this Friday night.

    1. I like the vibe at Harry's at Hanover Square. You're not too far from Les Halles on John and that would be well under $25 an entree. Otherwise you've tons of choices if you go over to S. Street Seaport but you mightn't want to go that far over.

        i also really like Harrys..though I guess it depends what time the dinner is on Friday because theres a huge happy hour crowd on stone street in the summer..
        ulysses next door is always fun for a drink too! (same owner for harrys, financier and ulysses)

            You can find most restaurant menus by going to

    2. The Wall St/Financial District is a bit of ghost town when it comes to dinner places. I would venture a little farther north. How far out of the Wall St area are you looking to travel?

        I agree Wall St is not great for food but if you are willing to travel to the tribeca area you will have more options

          We are willing to travel - bring it on! Great food is the top priority.

      2. Try Fraunces Tavern on Pearl Street. This historic gem was built in the mid 1700's and is a historic landmark downtown. The lunch menu is great and I've eaten there several times. I've never been there for dinner but I am sure it is just as good. Well worth a visit and a taste of history too.

          Thanks! How would you describe the menu?

            Food is American. I've been for lunch, which is if you're in the area (wouldn't go out of my way).

        2. Blaue Gans in tribeca has good interesting Austrian food that should be in your budget.
